In May of 2016 I graduated from architecture school with a mountain of loan debt and a passion for design. Soon after graduation I found a job at a local architecture firm where I worked to pursue a career and pay down my student loans. Nine months into my “career” I realized that a desk job wasn’t for me, so I quit.
With a few bucks and a big vision to pursue my childhood passion, I setup shop in the basement of my parents log home and began building custom furnishings once again.
I founded Drake Woodworking on the notion of making furniture into more than an object, but an experience. Here, I merge my architectural sensitivities with fine craft to create pieces that transcend their function and transform their spaces.
